" 'The Curse of the Mummy's Tomb' by R.L. Stine is about a boy named Gabe who explores an old pyramid with his cousin Sari and Uncle Ben. This book is cool because lots of mummies come out and save the kids from a bad guy. My favorite part was when the mummies came to life."

"In 'Toy Story' by Marshall Kimmans, a boy named Andy has two toys, a Woody and a Buzz Lightyear. He got the Buzz Lightyear for his birthday. Woody was jealous of him. If you like adventure stories, read this book."

"I liked the book 'Out of the Dark' by Betty Ren Wright. It was about a girl named Jessie who moved to her grandmother's house for the summer. Jessie started to have dreams about an old school house. One day she was riding her bike through the woods and found this same house from her dreams. Jessie becomes caught in a mystery from years ago and is haunted by a strange ghost from the past."
